America needs a political revolution! The wealthiest 400 have more wealth than 150 million. 95\% of the income gains since 2000 have gone to the top 1\%. Democracy has become an oligarchy or plutocracy with checks and balances being replaced by revolving doors. Sen Sanders is not a cardboard politician who only says what people want to hear and what conforms to the script. As Sanders stopped the Post Office from closing 80 bulk mail centers, he could help bring tax justice and reverse the perversions of endless war and free trade agreements at the expense of labor and the environment.
Unlike a chair, an idea can be shared by a whole people. The strength of the Democrats is the folly of the Republicans. Sanders could lead us to a post-fossil, post-growth and post-autistic economy where work is redefined and shared, health and education are rights not privileges and the trickle-down neoliberal/neofeudal myths leading to exploding inequality, cynicism, nihilism and resignation are abandoned.
Warren Buffet would pay more federal income tax than his secretary. The $11 trillion in tax havens would be returned to counter the revenue crisis. Taxes on capital gains wouldn't be half personal income taxes. The $118K cap on social security tax liability would disappear like a distant star and public spirit, trust between the generations, would return. The education paradigm would slowly shift away from the huckster mentality to the sharing mentality. Go Bernie Go!
